As nearly destroyed What stood out for me in this book was the world outside Haven The Deviants and Shredders and how they came to be I can t get into much detail otherwise it would be a spoiler but I wasn t expecting some of the things that happened and were evealed in this book It made some moments pretty shocking and excitingThen there s the main character Glory She s a determined girl who basically had to grow up uickly and become the parent to her younger brother I like that she loves Drake and will do anything and everything to protect him I did get frustrated with her a lot though She had a tendency to not trust people and jump to conclusions uickly It made sense that she would be that way considering the betrayal she felt after what her father did but there were instances where I felt she could have sought out answers first There s also some Mr. Majeika and the Dinner Lady and Mr. Majeika and the Music Teacher romance in this book a bit of a love triangle involving Glory and two very different guys I m normally not a fan of love triangles however while I think it s obvious who Glory will end up with it doesn t seem like it s going to be easy I m actuallyeally curious how this one is going to work out Deviants was an adventurous and thrilling start to a new series As I mentioned before it was a fast paced Twilight of the Idols read and very easy to become pulled into the story Iecommend it to those who can t get enough of the post apocalyptic and dystopia genres Deviants by Maureen McGowan is not my cup of tea but it wasn t horrible Not the best way to start a Ninth City Burning (War of the Realms, review but I like to be upfront I didn t like the book for the first half of it It is a teen girl scifi dystopia novel similar to Under the Never Sky by Veronica Rossi It is about the same level in terms of writing skills The story itself will probably appeal to teenage girls who are boy crazy but for an old guy like me the main character Gloryeminded me of every whiny ex girlfriend I every had who wouldn t listen to a darn thing I had to sayso the first half of this novel was painful The Story The Earth has been hit by several asteroids leaving choking dust everywher I started this awhile ago ead about half and then got annoyed so I just stopped Glory is kind of an annoying character Her emotions are all Glory is kind of an annoying character Her emotions are all the place which is kind of weird because she s supposed to have a firm control over them She s supposed to come across as tough but she often comes across as the stereotypical melodramatic irrational female a trope that I completely loathe Glory has been hiding her paralyzed brother and protecting him from the Comps police for three years She has her own secret though she s a Deviant a Deviants is probably the most scientifically sound dystopian type novel I ead in a while The premise is simple Earth has undergone an catastrophe so society has walled itself in read in a while The premise is simple Earth has undergone an environmental catastrophe so society has walled itself in Dome to protect themselves from the Dust outside Our protagonist Glory is a Deviant someone who shares DNA with a beast called a Shredder While she might not be agreeable or she might not make the brightest decisions she is fiercely loyal to her family and herself All her decisions seem to come from a self actualized center She is also 16 so maturity might not be her strong point but that is the purpose She s not supposed to be a hero or a chosen one She is different even among her own but her story is not a savior story It s about a girl who wants to protect those she loves and comes to love Which I think might be a breath of fresh air among all these chosen one type story dominating not only the YA scene but also the cinemas. En her entire worldOutside in the Chinaberries and Crows ruins they’re pursued by the authorities and by sadistic scab covered Shredders who are addicted to the lethal to humans dust now covering the planet Glory’s uests to transport herself and her brother to safety make up the thrilling and fascinating first volume of The Dust Chronicles.
